I'm Kevin from Tacoma. Last year was given a Father's Day gift for both a smoking and grilling class from a school in Seattle. I took the info I learned from it and started running.
I built myself an UDS (ugly drum smoker) and have loved using it ever since. As I mentioned earlier, I am fairly new to smoking. So far I've been able to do several racks of ribs, a pork butt, a meatloaf, and some whole chickens. My wife and 2 daughters love it when I use the smoker. My 4 yr old was given the option for her last birthday for either ribs or pulled pork. Her response was "RIBS!"
I look forward to learning more. Thanks in advance for the help!
